Wizards lose soccer complex vote

Voters in Johnson County, Kansas, voted down a $75 million soccer complex by a vote of 64-34. The complex was going to build 24 high quality fields for youth players, but critics called it corporate welfare for MLS's Kansas City Wizards.

The Wizards were planning on building a stadium next to the complex, but none of the money was going to go directly to the club.

The owners of the team have said in the past that they have a plan B in case the complex vote failed. It looks like we will find out soon enough if and what that plan might be.
